*Walks In* Been a while since we’ve been here, eh guys? Well, here we are once again! A “What The *Bleep Am I Doing?!” This time we’re gonna be talking about how to make stuff and deal with Worbla Deco Art! It’s a cool Worbla-esque product from Worbla. I’m glad I get to tell y’all about it. And if I can save at least one person from getting sticky, uncooled moldable material on their fingers, I have done my job. So let’s get started eh?
So. It’s completely built and ready to go, what could possibly be the next step? Simple! Prime, Paint, and Perfect! The last step is also known as…Detail the ever-loving crap out of it. This last part of the Celty helmet was the most time-consuming, but it’s one of my favorite steps on a project. Let’s see how this one went, shall we?
Alright guys, if I ever in the future or the not-so-distant future say that a project I’m working on is harder than anything I’ve done…remind me of this helmet. Cause holy cannoli, when I first printed out the pattern and cut out the different pieces so I could trace it on the EVA foam, I did not see how difficult this build was actually going to be.
Celty Sturluson. The badass Dullahan from the anime Durarara. She’s definitely a memorable character and one of my favorites this is why she’s my new and current cosplay project. She’s been a dream of mine to cosplay for a really long time and now that I have more skills and have eight years of experience under my belt, I can achieve this goal. And I’m taking y’all on this journey with me from its first designs to each part of the build. So, let’s get this thing started!
But even though cosplay contests are a lot of fun there is a lot of stress that comes with it. But that’s where I come in! I’ve been through the stress and the fun, so I know pretty well how to navigate it. I’ve also gotten a lot of advice too so spreading the info to all of y’all makes me more than happy. So, let’s get to it eh?
Sexual harassment has always been a hot topic in society and has been discussed repeatedly from incidents in Hollywood to politics. But, it doesn’t just happen in places of public figures, sexual harassment has been a problem in the cosplay community as well.
Picture this: You were able to put together every piece for your latest cosplay and now you only need to style the wig. One problem though. In order to get it to look canon-compliant or like your design, you need a tutorial to figure out how in the bloody hell you’re going to attempt such a feat. The thing is, no such tutorial exists. Now my friends, if said wig is for a Sukuna cosplay from Jujutsu Kaisen, look no further your tutorial is here!
You have to start from somewhere. That’s how the saying goes, doesn’t it? And that, I find, is something that rings true time and time again. Especially with cosplay. Seven years ago I literally had no clue what I was doing when it came to cosplay. I just barely found out about cosplay just after I graduated in 2014. It was when I went to my first anime convention Anime Banzai. I saw how everywhere I turned there were these absolutely amazing cosplays of so many of my favorite characters. After I left that weekend, I knew I had to give it a try. I just didn’t know how. Thus the adventure began.
Cosplay Conventions, everyone has a lot of fun with them and the different things your able to do at them. So, going along with Wednesday’s What the Bleep Am I Doing?! I will be giving all of you this week’s top ten list of popular things that many people love doing at conventions! So, let’s get to it shall we?
Cosplay conventions, thanks to Covid last year we didn’t get any of them. But now that things have calmed down we get our beloved conventions back! Yet with that, sure we get fun times hanging out with friends, seeing our favorite voice actors—if you go to an anime convention or your convention invites VAs, and all of the other awesome stuff that comes along with conventions, but you also get some stressors too. That is where this week’s What the Bleep Am I Doing?! Rebel Fae’s Guide To… It will be on surviving the con! So, we can make the convention as non-stressful as possible. And as a frequent con-goer myself I’ve definitely picked up a thing or two. So, let’s get to it eh?
Hello, my lovely little Rebels! I hope you’re all having an amazing last week of October and gettering ready for the best day of the year: October 31st Halloween! I’m happy to say I’m starting up a new/old article series! My top ten lists!!! Those of you who have been here since the beginning probably remember these, but I’m bringing them back! Except with a slight difference.
Kay first up on the list of advice when making a breastplate, for the love of all that is good and holy please measure, measure measure! When you use your patterns make sure you create the measurements to fit you directly. When you make your own it’s much easier to make it towards your own measurements, but if you use someone else’s you have to pay attention to the measurements of the pattern so you can adapt it to fit you perfectly. Don’t just guesstimate so to speak. That’s what I did when I got a hold of the pattern I was going to use to make my breastplate annnnd well…
